(Music & Words: Martin & Jenny Schaub)

A deckhand kept humming a tune
Tucked in his hand
some old ribbons
Red´s for my loved one, he sang
Black is the colour of widows

White as a ghost or my face
Yellow as lights too enticing
Green stands for sickness and fear
Blue for the waves
we keep fighting

There´s a savage sea below us
And vultures on the cliffs
With their lanterns and crowbars they patiently wait
Wait, as the gannets are gliding,
for the death of a ship

A night without stars,
without hope
A storm, and a ship that is dying
A battle that´s bound to be lost
No matter how hard
we keep trying

There´s a savage sea below us
And vultures on the cliffs
With their lanterns and crowbars they patiently wait
Wait, as the gannets are gliding,
for the death of a ship

Watch out all you boys
Don´t be fooled by the light
(Red is for love.
Black is for widows)
Watch out all you boys
Don´t be fooled by the light
(Green is for sickness.
Blue for the waves)
Watch out all you boys
Don´t be fooled by the light
(White as a ghost. Yellow for light)
It´s wrecker´s weather tonight
